University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban's "first news conference of the preseason practice schedule" is annually a seminal moment in Tuscaloosa. At this year's FNCotPPS, Saban expressed dismay with the speed by which stories/rumors/innuendo spreads in the information age. Sayeth Saban to the press corps, "You all can go crazy out on misinformation and bad information and have no professionalism to try to find out if it did or didn't happen. Just to create some you-know-what."
Yeah, we know what, Nick. He does have a shenanigans solution for this damn newfangled problem, just as soon as he can figure out the intricacies of pulling it off.
"I'm gonna start messing with you," he said. "I don't know how to do that, but I'm gonna start doing it. Everyday I'm going to post something that's just total B.S."
Go to 3:45 of the video to watch Saban throw down the cyber gauntlet. Stick around if you want to hear about Duron Carter's grades.
